When I think of kitsch with regard to postcards, I think of things like Elvis's head on Mt. Rushmore, pictures of the world's largest ball of string, postcards with casserole recipes, maps with little illustrations on them, City X at night that's just an all black image, and so forth.  Tacky, weird, retro, and the like.

Anyone else have other examples?

Yep, what she said!  Cheesy

We've arrived at our B&B for our holiday, and I'm just doing a very quick check in here...will get to the PMs/signups in the morning. Looks like, if all checks out, we've made our maximum! BTW: I've adjusted it to be 11 participants, so each person will send 10 cards.

Trying to get the tyke on local time, so better run. I'll update everything in the morning.

Yay! We're filled!! I'll be sending out the mailing information later today (possibly tomorrow morning -- still jet lagged)

Please check your profiles to make sure you're shown as "In Progress" for this swap. Thanks!

Hooray!

I'm leaving on a boring business trip to the middle of nowhere in a few hours.  I think I'll stick my postcards in my bag so I can write them on the trip and pretend I'm somewhere exciting!

Whooo hoooo! I just put together the spredsheet for the swap, and sent it out. It's a list of the swappers and their addresses. There's a column for tracking the cards you send, but you can change it to something you like better.

Even though it's an easy swap, no dc#s, no receipts, etc., please PM me when you've sent your post cards, so I can keep track....just one PM is enough after you've sent all postcards, or a PM with each PC sent.

If you notice a typo in the spreadsheet, on your information, please let me know and I will notify the other swappers.

I've been looking for kitschy postcards today...not hard to find, but tough to choose!  Cheesy

Well pout .. unfortunately I can't open ods files.  If anyone else can and is able to translate it to something different, I would appreciate it.  Just pm me for my private e-mail.

I'm in the same boat!  I don't even know what .ods is.

Count me in on the request for help.

I had to download yet a new program, but I got it!

If anyone wants it sent to them in a word doc or text file or something send me a PM with your personal email and the preferred format.

Sorry about that! It's supposed to be an excel file, but....my DH is a computer geek and loves the open source software. He said "It's the same as excel" ummm, yeah. I don't think so.

Anyway, if you need it in .xls, let me know. I can get it to you soon-ish.

I should have just done it in word in the first place.
